The first person to present an alternative and more credible narrative for 7/7 was Yorkshireman Anthony John Hill in, this, his documentary '7/7 The Ripple Effect'. Hill, a very unusual character in many ways, has renamed himself Muad'Dib, after a character in Frank Herbert's sci-fi epic 'Dune'. It is his interpretation of events that have been presented above, excepting that 'Dib did not know of the pregnancy problems of Khan's wife, nor about the 4.35 text-messages, nor Khan's failure to contact his wife after leaving her on the evening of the 5th of July at the time of making his film.
When a group of 'Islamic terrorists', allegedly associates of Khan, went on trial for offences in 2008 at Kingston Crown Court, Hill posted two copies of his DVD to the court. One envelope was addressed to the judge, the other to the foreman of the jury. Neither DVD reached its target but shortly afterwards a request for Hill to be extradited from Ireland (he lived in Kells, County Meath at the time) was sent to the Irish Ministry of Justice. The request was successful and Hill was collected by a British policeman, accompanied across the water and incarcerated in Wandsworth prison shortly before the start of the 7/7 Inquest.
Hill relates, amusingly, that he asked the policeman in whose charge he was placed, "Have you watched my film?" The constable replied, "Yes." "What did you think of it?" asked Hill. The PC offered a look that was wide-eyed and grim. Hill asked him, "Shouldn't you be arresting Tony Blair and not me?" and the policeman sheepishly went back to reading his newspaper.
Hill made immediate applications for bail but was only released once the Inquest was finished.
His documentary has been copied and handed out at mosques to thousands of Muslims in the UK. Most Muslims now believe 'The Four' to be innocent, largely because of 'Dib's work. The authorities were obviously determined he would not upset the 7/7 Inquest operation by getting his film into the hands of family members, press and God knows who else. This man scares them and has suffered accordingly.
At his own trial this video was bizarrely played to the jury and they subsequently aquitted him on all counts. Most of the jury, as well as the jury foreman, tried very hard not to laugh at the prosecution as the foreman rendered the verdict!
